A playful puppy who became jealous of an older sheepdog who was just trying to do his job clung onto his tail to stop him from herding the animals.

Footage shows nine-month-old Flo holding the tail of Sam, seven – both Border Collies – tightly in her tiny jaws.

She is seen pulling him back from the flock of sheep as he desperately tries to herd them in Inverurie, Scotland.

On several occasions, Sam attempts to spring towards the sheep but is blocked by the puppy’s grip.

Sam, who is not related to the cheeky puppy, finally manages to free himself with a dramatic sprint, which leaves Flo rolling on her back.

Owner Rory Gregor, 28, witnessed the whole hilarious episode and recorded the film in the Scottish field.

Mr Gregor, a contract shepherd, said: ‘Sam and I were trying to gather the sheep for vaccination.

‘Sam was trying to concentrate on his job, but Flo was too eager to play and wouldn’t leave him alone. It was hilarious to see.’
